At Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Monday, Royal Challengers Bangalore and MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings engaged in a run-fest. Batting first, CSK were led to 226/6 by the rapid half-centuries of Devon Conway and Shivam Dube. Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell of the RCB scored half-centuries in response, but RCB still fell short by by eight runs. Virat Kohli was one batter whose performance in the batting line was anticipated to be strong. But, in the opening over of the chase, the former RCB captain was bowled by Akash Singh for just six runs. In response to a back of the length delivery, Kohli swung forcefully and played the ball on to the stumps. Anushka Sharma, Kohli’s wife, as well as the fans in Bengaluru were in disbelief when he was out.
